Mutts Gone Nuts Mission & Assurances:
Our show's dogs were adopted from animal shelters
or from rescue groups. We use all positive, reward-based training methods, which means: We reward and reinforce the behaviors that we want (with treats, toys, praise) and we ignore the behaviors we don't want.
We look for what our dogs like to do naturally, and cultivate those talents.
Living Conditions for our dogs:
Our dogs travel in large, padded, climate controlled
kennels for their safety when on tour.
They have 2 acres of fenced area to run when at home.
All of our dogs live indoors and are never kept
outside in kennels, and are USDA APHIS (Animal Welfare) registered.
